Hi Kristen! A thesis about temperate forest gardening, how interesting! Could we talk about this on skype soon?
Hi Thomas! Thank you for your interest! I'd be happy to talk further! Feel free to send me a "Purple Mooseage" so we can coordinate about a time to talk!

Kristen Thompson wrote:Hi Thomas,
I finished my undergraduate thesis on temperate forest gardening this past May, and I was ecstatic when I saw your video posted on National Geographic's website while I was finishing my project!
Dave Jacke's Edible Forest Gardens book is what initially sparked my interest in food forests. My professor pointed me towards the book after I went to a conference where I was introduced to the concept of agroforestry, and took an interest in incorporating woody perennials into agriculture. I look forward to forest gardening again someday when I have my own piece of property!
I'm so excited to hear you're making a full-length documentary, and I look forward to watching it! This project looks like a dream!
Unfortunately, I can't offer much in the way of money (college is very expensive here in the U.S.) but if you ever need other kinds of support with making this project a reality I'd love to see if I can help!
Greg Martin wrote:Hi Thomas, I have a young forest garden which I adore and love spending time in (see link in my signature line). I was inspired by a talk I went to by Dave Jacke 15 or so years ago. He had us close our eyes and imagine walking through an amazing food forest that he described. I remember that talk quite well. It made me lay down the cash for his 2 forest garden books, which I devoured. I just added support to your project in the hopes that others will be as inspired by it as I was from Dave's talk. Also, I can't wait to watch it myself! Always looking for boosts of inspiration.

If you want to travel, this might be a great project to follow. I am in the process of buying land now in the beautiful island of Skiathos, in Greece. Planting a food forest is a part of our projects, you are welcome to come whenever you want :)
Good luck with your crowdfunding !

Forest gardening is new to me but I'm very interested to do more with it.
I will share your video and do hope funding will come in to help you further your amazing work
